Just had another thought. As there is already a Walton Streetlife, why don't you reach out to others by starting topics yourself instead of looking to join in what others have started (or haven't as in this case). It might work is worth a try surely :)
Sarah C
yes I thought of doing that actually. It might get the ball rolling. Thanks I'll copy some of the topics from this one haha

You could try looking on spareroom.com.  Its not bed and breakfast (although some maybe), but it would be a cheap room if that's what you are looking for.

Will there be any toilets any where this year?  we found this a problem last year.
Marilyn C
Afraid not. I don't really see how we could do that as it is just a private estate with no community facilities. The only place nearby with toilets would be the Golf up Foxhall Rd.
